A building can have the best possible design for achieving energy saving, but unless it is constructed as designed and is operated according to the design intent, it will not realize those energy savings. Mechanical Consultants Inc. - Building Commissioning Division ensures that the energy- and water-saving methods and devices selected by the design team are incorporated in the building plans and specifications; that everything is built and tested accordingly; and that school personnel, including those occupying the building, are provided the necessary documentation and training to operate the building properly after it is occupied.
Some owners prefer to use third-party consultants for the building commissioning role to ensure that the work is done independently of the design team and that the results are not biased. Mechanical Consultants Inc. - Building Commissioning Division is happy to work in this role, answering only to the owner.

Commissioning is a systematic process.
It integrates and enhances the traditionally separate functions of design peer review, equipment operational documentation and facility staff training, as well as functional testing and performance verification.
Commissioning is a quality assurance process.
It spans from pre-design to construction and start-up and increases the likelihood that a new building will meet the owner's expectations. Commissioning enables a building to begin its life cycle at optimal productivity and assists in maintaining this high level of performance. Commissioning brings back the missing ingredient necessary for all great buildings. Only with a formal commissioning program, can you be assured that your building will operate to its peak potential.
